Gates Offers New Spanish Online Training Program

The Gates Corp. has unveiled a new, free online training program for Spanish-speaking aftermarket professionals in the U.S. The program, “Acelera Tu Conocimiento” provides valuable education for this audience to help them to improve the quality of repairs.

“Acelera Tu Conocimiento” is a video training program that provides information on vital automotive maintenance procedures. The first video discusses maintenance on the accessory belt drive system. At the end of the video, participants take a short quiz to test their knowledge of the material covered. With a passing score of 70 percent or higher, participants earn a restaurant gift card and a printable certificate of completion.

Gates’ online training program, including an English version called “Acceleration Sessions,” was developed as an effort to educate automotive professionals about critical preventative maintenance measures. This training helps to elevate customer satisfaction, prevent comebacks and increase profits, according to Gates.

“We are very proud to offer Spanish-speaking aftermarket professionals free training that helps them build important skills,” said Dave Miller, vice president of marketing. “We will continue to offer training and resources in Spanish as we strive to connect with these valuable professionals.”
